Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
(CAV) Cyber Threats

Common autonomous vehicles attacks:

  • Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack
  • Side-channel
  • 3rd party taking control of the vehicle/surrounding infrastructure
  • Denial-of-service (DoS)
  • Unauthorized software modifications
  • 3rd party accessing PII (personally identifiable information)

Automotive Cybersecurity Risk Assessment Methodology

There is currently no internationally recognized cyber security standard/framework for autonomous vehicles, which is why applying best practices and security controls is essential. We conduct risk assessment using the information assurance methodology based on the following:

  • ISO 27005:2013
  • ISO/IEC 27005:2011
  • Information technology
  • Security techniques
  • Information security risk management
